Call Report Preparation

Call Report Preparation

Who Should Attend

Call report preparation requires knowledge of bank accounting, bank regulations, and virtually all bank operations. Banks should train a preparer and reviewer. Anyone responsible for preparing, auditing, or signing the call report will find the program valuable. New and experienced preparers and reviewers should be trained.  The seminar will provide basic training for new preparers, though some basic accounting knowledge is helpful, and complete coverage of new and complex issues for experienced preparers. Annual training is highly recommended by bank regulators.

Program Topics

The seminar will provide basic training for new preparers and complete coverage of new and complex issues for experienced preparers. This Call Report seminar presentation will be in the order of the schedules, starting with the Income Statement schedules followed by all Balance Sheet schedules. New, proposed, and revised changes will be discussed with the schedules they will impact and a summary of all recent updates will be included at the end of the manual. Participants will receive a 300+ page manual and Ms. Dopjera will be available to answer future Call Report questions by email. Annual training is highly recommended by regulators. Participants may want to bring their bank’s most recent Call Report for resolution of questions during the session. The FFIEC 041 & 051 forms will be used in the presentation and materials.
